Next carrier
« on: April 07, 2024, 08:50:32 pm »

My next project after the Lisa M is finished, will be a second escourt carrier. When finished USS Copahee will become part of my collection of 1/96 scale warships. Copahee will be an ideal partner for USS Gambier Bay.  In the boxes are a full set of fittings for the new carrier many parts in the boxes are kits in there own right.

Not going to steal his thunder David BUT at 1/96 it's going to be a big s*d and it sounds like it's going to be a working static. Launch crew would be three on the bank and four int water. OK for Batley park but difficult elsewhere.

Hi sadly a working static. The challenge to build two is a steep mountain to climb but been able to exhibit two cariers along with the remaining fleet will be well worth it. :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-))

Hi all very interesting reading about CVE12 in Wikipedia.  I found a paragraph Quote.

On 28 July 1944, she returned to San Diego, California with a load of captured Japanese planes (13 Mitsubishi A6M Zeros and 1 Nakajima B5N "Kate") and equipment (37 engines) to be used for intelligence and training purposes.

Now that might be a bit unique!  A collection of Japanese aircraft on board a US carrier.
